Arlington County Fair: A Beloved Summer Tradition Returns Aug. 14-18!

It’s that time of year again! The Arlington County Fair is back in town in less than a month from August 14th through August 18th at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center. For over 40 years, this beloved free event has been a family tradition for ages with fond memories for all. Last year nearly 75,000 people attended the fair throughout the week, truly vouching for just how fun it is!

You really can spend days taking in all that the fair has to offer. From your standard fair food kiosks and rides to fun events like goat yoga (buy your ticket soon!) and butterfly encounters, or competitive events like bake-offs and fine arts exhibitions – there really is something for every age and interest. If you’re heading to the fair with little guys, you’ll definitely want to purchase some tickets for rides and games to try to win the biggest stuffed animal around. Tickets are only $1 each or 24 tickets for $20.

Note that there is no public parking so you’ll want to visit their website to come up with your game plan prior to the event.
